12:53 am
you know, because my parents are from liverpool, england, and so that's my team. i had no choice. you get issued that as a child. and i was like, "i want to go see england play," you know. and i want atmosphere. i want to see it with other english fans. and then i'm like, "wait a second, seth meyers? are we related?" [ laughter ] i thought, "is this my cousin seth?" >> seth: it was a great night. and then, have you been supporting england? >> oh, yeah, yeah. i'm also supporting united states, too, because i became a citizen. so i'm very, very excited.

12:54 am
[ laughter ] where would she most want it to happen? >> well, she didn't know. i kept it a surprise, a secret, and all that stuff you're supposed to do. and i'm in my very, very, very late 30s, wearing form-fitting soccer gear, which is not awesome for me, really. [ laughter ] but i was such a fan. i wore everything. you know, the england shirt. the england shorts, even. but because i ordered them online, they ended up being really uncomfortable shorty shorts. [ laughter ] england socks. but i had a big box in my pocket that i was trying to hide. i even had the england flag. i wore the superman cape, you know. kelly was like, "you're kind of like a public person. you know? isn't this a little weird?" i said, "i know." and she goes, "boy, you're acting so weird." i'm waiting for the right moment, and then england scored. and i got on my knee and i said, "will you marry me?" she said yes. and i thought, "this is fantastic. it could be another sign." and then the united states scored. >> seth: perfect.
12:55 am
and ultimately, marriage is a draw at its best day. >> yes. ohh. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's really, like, the perfect outcome.

12:56 am
it's kind of like the bleacher bombs in chicago meets britain's most wanted. and this guy had a magazine. i said, "who takes a magazine to a soccer game?" he rolls it up and he pees through it onto my back of my leg, and i can't move. [ audience ohs ] and this giant guy -- he was bald. he had parts of his eyebrows missing. it looked like he sharpened his teeth. [ laughter ] and he was eating a meat pie at the same time. like this. and i said, "dude." because i'm canadian. the best i could do was, "eh, buddy, what is that?" [ laughter ] you know, "what are you mental or something?" that's the best i could do. and he just looked down at me with bits of like pie flying and goes, "got a problem with that, mate? do you have a problem with that?" and i was like, "nope, perfectly fine."

12:57 am
hollywood manager who's managed everyone from alice cooper to groucho marx -- >> luther vandross, anne murray, rick james. i met shep gordon on the set of "wayne's world" in 1991. and i'd never been in a film let alone written one. i'd never even been on, like, a movie set. you know what i mean? and all of a sudden, i have to meet a rock and roll manager. i was a punk rocker, you know, years before. and this guy comes in, bald but with gray hair in a ponytail, wearing a satin tour jacket. and i thought, "okay, i got to deal with this dude." >> seth: and this is because alice cooper was in the movie. >> alice cooper was in the movie. he's alice cooper's manager. and so there's, you know, something that needed to be fixed. and i just thought -- i just liked him. i just got such a tremendous vibe, and we kept in touch. and he lives in hawaii. i'd never been to hawaii. i wasn't allowed to go to hawaii, because my dad is from liverpool.
12:58 am
and there's a thing called liverpool alzheimer's, where you forget everything except the grudges. >> seth: okay, gotcha. >> and he was upset with hawaii. >> seth: your dad was upset with hawaii? >> yeah, because he would be like, "oh, they bloody murdered captain cook." [ laughter ] in 1780. >> seth: so on old grudge? >> i go, "what?" and then he'd say, "they bloody murdered him in his sleep. get that bloody pineapple out of the house." [ laughter ] i'd be like, "wow, dude, that's a grudge." that's fantastic. 1780. so i'd never been. i went and i was staying in a hotel. and "wayne's world" had come out. this was after "wayne's world." and things kind of exploded. somebody told me to have a fake name. so i had a fake name, which was pierre trudeau, you know. [ laughter ] all of a sudden he calls up to the room. and i'm going, "how did you get through?" and he goes, "it's hawaii." he goes -- he's from new york and he talks like this. he goes, "it's hawaii." goes, do you want to go to a luau with sylvester stallone and arnold schwarzenegger and whoopi -- and just the biggest names.
12:59 am
and so i did. and it was like going to madame tussauds with a roasted pig. [ laughter ] i had such a fantastic time. and the thing i loved about him, he's very comfortable with maybe the world's most famous people. and also very lovely to just people, like just everybody. and i just thought, this guy's fascinating. so i just started asking him stories. and for 20 years i've been asking him stories. and for 20 years i've been saying, please let me do a film about you. and then, three years ago, he said yes. now i had other things that i was going to do. and i've never really planned my career. i wouldn't know how to plan a career. i just make stuff. and i just thought, okay. that's my next movie. so i've been spending the last two and a half years doing that. and i had two children, so -- >> seth: that's great. [ cheers and applause ] that's great for you. we're going to come right back. when we come back, shep's going to join us. and we'll take a look at the movie. it's great, and i can't wait to talk to both of you at the same time. >> thanks so much. thank you. >> seth: we'll be right back!

♪ [ cheers and applause ] welcome back to "late night," everyone. my next guest is a funny comedian, writer and actor.
1:16 am
her new stand-up special, "whitney cummings: i love you," airs saturday, june 28th on comedy central. please welcome whitney cummings. [ cheers and applause] ♪ >> wow! >> seth: you look beautiful. >> it's a little desperate. >> seth: it's lovely. >> it's a little needy, what i'm doing right now. but, you know, that's who i am. and i just want you to like me. >> seth: you're off to such a good start. i can really tell they're going for it. they're going for it! >> they're buying it! >> seth: they're buying it! >> i feel the likes on instagram all ready. >> seth: you and i know each other a little bit, but we share a best friend. >> this is weird. >> seth: yes. >> and i'm sorry -- >> seth: yeah. >> i'm sorry we have to do this on television. but your best friend is my best friend, which means he's not one of our best friends. >> seth: that's right. he's definitely mine. he's definitely yours.
1:17 am
>> but, he's not one of ours. >> so basically, neal brennan, very funny comedian, is seth's best friend. but he also is my best friend, and seth and i don't ever hang out. >> seth: yeah. >> i think he keeps us separate. >> seth: right. i think it's like people with two families. they definitely -- they don't bring them to the same picnic. >> totally. so one of us is the side kick. >> seth: yeah, and we got to figure out who's who. >> and i don't know which one it is. but i get very jealous because he talks about you quite a lot. you know, and he's like, "well, seth says." i'm like, "all right, why don't you go hang out with seth?" >> seth: yeah? >> i get very jealous. and he walks into my house. he's like, "all right, seth, i've got to go." how dare you talk to him in front of me in my own home? >> seth: here's the good news. this right here -- >> um-hm? >> seth: is driving him -- >> crazy! he's so jealous. >> seth: he's so jealous. you know you're jealous. >> neal, eat it! [ laughter ] but we never get to hang out. >> seth: i know. but now, it's funny because i have this when i talk to neal. i know you do. you probably have since so many comedian friends. >> yeah. >> seth: when you talk on the
1:18 am
phone to comedians -- it's an interesting thing where you don't know, in the end, like who wrote what. >> this is exactly right. so a friend of mine who's a comedian will be on the phone for 45 minutes -- you know, neal for example. -- talking about emotional things, asking for advice, asking for help. and by the end, it's like, "all right, i'll talk to you later." like, "all right, talk to you soon." hey, so are you going to do that tinder thing or is that mine? >> seth: right. >> you have to divvy up the conversation. >> seth: right, like which bits are good. >> who gets what. okay, that whole thing about your mother being an alcoholic, is that yours or mine? i'm like, i think that's mine. >> seth: i have the best joke about your mother being an alcoholic, though, so i feel like it should be mine. >> and we have to divvy it up. i feel like that's better for you. so that's love. i mean, for comedians to be able to give away their bits and figure it out -- >> seth: there's always -- sometimes, i will feel -- like when i'm talking to people, i'll say a funny thing right at the end. and then feel mad. where it's like all i've done is put the pupils on the mona lisa. like, i didn't paint it. it's like, "and there." so i feel like we both did it. we both did it. [ laughter ]
1:19 am
>> feel like we'll go halfsies on that one. maybe we should become a comedy duo so that we can both get these. but it is funny where -- comedians, it's like there's no off-the-record, intimate moment. it's always like, "i'm sorry that happened. so can i have that one?" [ laughter ] >> seth: the worst one is when you tell somebody something super emotional about relationships, and they say you should do that on stage. >> or the worst is when someone who's not funny at all, who's boring the hell out of you and telling you a super long story that you just want out of, and they're like, "you can have that one." [ laughter ] like, i'm good. thanks, though. >> seth: if i can have it, can i have a second to go put it in the garbage? [ laughter ] you -- it's your first standup special in four years? >> i know. because i was doing another -- >> seth: i, by the way, held up all five fingers, by the way. [ laughter ] edit out the thumb. >> we need to work on that. >> seth: yeah. >> yes, i haven't done a special in awhile because i was doing something else. but it's so good to be doing standup again. it's like my favorite thing in the world. but, it's taken kind of a toll. like, i had some healthy relationships there for awhile.
1:20 am
now that i'm doing standup again, i am alone. >> seth: now, this is another thing. because, when you're on stage and you're being honest and you're talking to strangers about your personal life, it's weird when people you're close to come. because you're telling strange -- yeah. >> so i was dating someone for like four months while i was working on the special before i shot it. and he wasn't allowed to come to shows. he wasn't allowed see me doing standup. i was like a stripper, like sneaking out at night. like going to do my set, coming home. because i talk about things on stage that i would never tell the person i'm dating. i'll tell a group of random strangers but i'll never tell my boyfriend. it's like, a relationship succeeds with a very delicate blend of lies and omission. >> seth: absolutely, yeah. >> if you come see me perform, it's stuff i would never admit. so he came and saw my special taping, finally. it was like five months. i was like, okay. so i go on stable ground, came and saw the show, broke up two weeks later. >> seth: wow. >> so i'm a martyr. >> seth: i think he's probably going to make the next special. >> i think you're right! i'm like, "bitch, it's on now!" [ laughter ] >> seth: you can definitely come
1:21 am
in four years. >> i know. thank you. i'll take that. but yes. so i feel like i'm sacrificing my personal life to make you jerks laugh. so i hope you enjoy it. >> seth: i enjoy it a great deal. [ cheers and applause ] also, because you talk about relationships -- four years difference, have you noticed any trends? do you have a different take on relationships four years later? >> i do! >> seth: great. >> i feel like my entire paradigm has shifted in the last couple years because i realize that i'm not a catch. i thought i was a catch. well, do you remember there was like a rumor going around for awhile that men like strong women? >> seth: uh-huh, yeah. >> remember that? >> seth: sure, sure. >> people were like, men like strong women! men like women, you know, who have their lives together. who have their own thing going on, who pay their bills. no, they don't. guys do not like strong women. i've seen porn. guys like school girls -- [ laughter ] with gags in their mouths. that's what they like. and you know, like, in porn there's a side bar that tells you the kinds. >> seth: no, i don't. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
1:22 am
a side bar? did you call it a side bar? okay, got you. >> there's like a menu. >> seth: a menu. okay, got you. >> there's a menu. >> seth: it's like a restaurant. >> it's like a -- [ laughs ] there's all this kind of porn. it's always like, girl on girl, college. there's no, like, ceo. >> seth: right. [ laughter ] independent woman. >> no! girl who pays her taxes on time. no one wants to sleep with that girl. so i feel like i am going about this all wrong. >> seth: right. because you are an independent woman. >> well, i fought. i grew up with nothing. i was like, "i've got be able to depend on myself, so i don't need a man." and now no one will have sex with me. >> seth: oh, my goodness. [ light laughter ] i'm so sorry about that. >> yeah. but it's not great. it's not -- i wouldn't date me either. >> seth: so you've noticed some things about yourself? >> it's not great. like, it's bleak. what i realize is that, as soon as i start liking someone, i have this obsessive compulsion to change everything about them. i'm like, "i love you.
1:23 am
now let's get to work." [ laughter ] and then i'll change everything about them. and a year later, i'm like, "you're not the man i fell in love with." [ laughter ] >> seth: that's perfect. my wife was very -- because my wife completely changed me, but she's so smart she made me think i was doing it. >> that's a genius. >> seth: if you want to be a strong woman, you've got to be super duper smart. >> set me up with her because i need some tips. >> seth: she'll help you through it. >> i'm like, this has to go. whole thing's not working for me. >> seth: and then, you feel like you interact with your fans at paramount using social media. >> i try. like, the idea of having fans, that's so weird to me. i am just a road comic in my head. i haven't caught up to all this stuff. but i really try to engage. i think it's important because they're who give us jobs. like you guys are our boss, you know? so i work very hard at trying to communicate with people. and every now and then, if there's tickets left, i'll get people tickets. but there's something that happens with you guys where, as soon as you engage someone who likes you, they lose respect for you.
1:24 am
and they start not liking you anymore. so there's this one guy that e-mailed me. and he was like, "hey, can i please get tickets? i can't afford it, and i'm such a big fan. i'll do anything to come to the show. this probably isn't even whitney. this is probably your assistant." he was like gushing. and i went through my e-mails one day. i was like, you know, i'm going to give him tickets. front row tickets to the show. i e-mailed him back personally, and i was like, "you're in! we're all good!" i'm thinking i'm making this guy's day. i'm like santa claus. 20 minutes before the show he e-mails me back. hey, babe. [ light laughter ] running a little late. where is it again? i'm like, i'm sorry. like 25 minutes ago, weren't you my biggest fan? and then, i'm like, hey! then i'm working for him. and i'm his assistant. i'm like, "hey, it's here." and i'm sending you directions. he's like, "you know what? i don't think i'm going to be able to make it tonight. when are you in town again?" i was like -- >> seth: i wanted to make it, then i found out you were a strong woman who could get me tickets. that's a mistake. that's a mistake. i'm so excited for your new special. whitney cummings, everyone!
